FBISD Observing National School Counseling Week

(FORT BEND ISD) – Fort Bend ISD is joining school districts across the nation in observing National School Counseling Week, which is February 6-10, and sponsored by the American School Counselor Association. This year’s theme is “School Counselors: Helping Students Dream Big.”

National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.


“School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing students’ academic concerns, career options and social/emotional skills,” said Jill Cook, ASCA executive director. “School counseling programs help to increase student achievement and provide a much-needed resource for students, parents, teachers, and administrators. School counselors are integral to student success.”


More than 100,000 school counselors nationwide will be participating in the week’s festivities. Many schools will be hosting special events and activities to call attention to the countless benefits of a comprehensive school counseling program.


As part of the celebration for National School Counseling Week, FBISD’s Social Emotional Learning Department will be celebrating our team by providing relevant and meaningful lessons and activities school counselors can offer at their respective campuses, as well as having a daily raffle and giveaway of counseling resources and gifts for the fantastic group of 173 professional school counselors in Fort Bend ISD.
